One thing that comes up at every one of my workshops is the idea of Training, vs. Discipline. I introduce the idea of changing communication and culture by adopting the ideas of Accepting and Building on offers (Yes, and) and we discuss uses and methods.
The big question becomes; How does it become second nature?
When Kevin Durant goes to dunk the basketball, he doesn't think "let's see, right foot first, then the left foot, then I jump at this spot, then I move the ball up..." It all just Happens. Practice makes perfect, and it makes a new reality where you don't have to think, your body just Knows how to do it.
Accepting and Building is the same. It is a practice. And when you practice it enough, you just end up doing it. It becomes a new Discipline that your body understands and automatically does.
The first step is being aware of where your feet go.
The next step is practicing where your feet go.
The third step is letting them go where they have learned to go.
What things are you in the process of practicing that you want to become a Discipline?
And also, what Disciplines do you have now that are detrimental to your goals?
Practice new habits.
